I've bought CHUWI HiBook Pro and I run it. I cannot use internet because I always losing access to internet. Signal is minimal that's why it happens. Even my old Samsung Galaxy S2 or any other device  has better signal... Maximum speed I reach is 2Mb/s (SGS2 reach up to 6 in the same place in the same position)! I tried update drivers. I tried change advanced options of wifi card .... no changes...

P.S. CHUWI you should learn from ONE PLUS! I bought OPX 1.5 year ago and still OPX is 5x better than yours device!

the bad wifi on hibook pro can be fixed by purchasing a wifi usb dongle from Amazon for 17.95(usd). It works perfectly when used with a micro usb to usb 2 connector.https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ ... ords=heiyo+wireless

And what should they learn ?

I have a opo, and what a shitty thing it is, have been in the drawer for almost 1½ years now, curse the freaking shit phone dosen't work, loosing contact to the sim card, and the only solution OnePlus can come up with is to flash a new image, like that would help

Hi, imcget
The reason why Chuwi hibook pro has wifi signal issue is that the Microsoft update the Bug, so that wifi antenna parameter does not match the the system.
Most of the similar issue can be solve by replacing another antenna.

@emily:

Most of the problem with WiFi is that Chuwi has done a sub-standard job of soldering the antenna coax cable directly to the motherboard near the WiFi module, instead of installing an MHF4 socket and plug on the antenna. This creates a significant impedance mismatch on a very sensitive and low-voltage circuit. Will Chuwi fix this problem for USA customers?
